Floor CoatingBack to
||Agriculture Food Manufacturing|
The floor surface around this candy processing machine would become slippery due to wax and gum buildup. The slippery floor area was a high risk concern for employee safety.
The complete area to be coated was cleaned using a Tenant floor scrubbing machine to remove wax and gum buildup. The floor area was then chemically etched 3 times using Devcon's B-4 Citrus Acid etch. Etching before applying any floor coatings will improve mechanical bonding properties. Floor Grip epoxy component was applied using a notched squeegee, then back rolled using a 1/8" nap paint roller. The silicon carbide granules were broadcast over the applied Floor Grip, then imbedded using a 1/8" nap paint roller.
